Check out our facebook page for more about this weekend an a photo report.

What a great weekend at Brands Hatch for the 5th and 6th round of the Nascar Whelen Euro Series...

With noise levels the formula 1 can take examples from. 

Very good to see the huge crowd at this well organised event.
We enjoyed every single moment of it.

large numbers of Beautiful American classics and Nascars almost made us forget there was also a race to race......

On Saturday it was qualifying and race time.

Results for Qualifying:
Elite 1
#50 Loris Hezemans P4
# 7 Martin Doubek P17

The results where all extremely close with the top 5 within a tenth of a second.


Elite 2 :
#50 Rik Ceyssens P23
#7 Maxim Pampel P21


Race time it was then......

Starting with the Elite 1 race and a great show ahead of that , both on track and off track....

With Loris starting from 2nd row target was to get on the podium..... as he did in a great way.. Loris managed to finish on P3 after a turbulent start and an ignition problem, making it even harder for him.

Eventually the P3 became a P2 after the race due to an unfortunate time penalty for Marc Goossens...

Loris got a double podium as he was also 1st in the Junior trophy....

Martin also drove very well but also for him there was a time penalty which threw him to the back in the results.


Later in the afternoon we had the Elite 2 Race with Rik and maxim starting on row 11 and 12.

They both drove a very good race with some good overtaking and clean action..

After 30 laps Rik crossed the line P16 and Maxim made it up to P14... This meant a podium for rik as P2 in the Legend trophy..

So getting up early on Sunday to make sure all was ready for Round 6 here.

A huge amount of fans was there to witness some great racing in all series.Starting with a Pit walk in the morning and the warm-up direct after that.

Today also started off with the Elite 1 race for us , Loris starting P9 as he could not set a proper lap time on Saturday with the ignition issues. and Martin on P10 in the #7 Chevy..

After the Grid walk it was time for the drivers to get in their harness and fire up the 400 horses...

Direct after the start loris lost some spot after getting pushed in the grass which dropped him back to 12th .

An accident on the back stretch taking out 3 cars brought out the red flag....

Martin had a small hand injury but he was able to drive.
After the restart Loris and Martin fought very hard to get to the front of the pack.A small hit after an overtake knocked the setup out of loris' car, but he still made it up to P9 and made the very best of it.

Martin drove an epic race and showed some good overtaking skills bringing him up P7 and P3 in the Junior trophy. so another podium.......


Elite 2 race up next....

Rik felt good and wanted to make up some spots from the back of the field after a good result on the saturday. but that got ruined at the start as a car ahead of him stalled, leading to an unavoidable hit damaging the front of the car a lot...

With some MacGyver construction during the safety car period we kept the car driving. but it was very hard to drive.. resulting in a disappointing end of the weekend for Rik on P18...

Maxim made it up to P13 but just missed the podium coming in 4th in the rookie trophy..

Still we can look back at a good weekend with great weather, great crowds , great racing and some sunburns.


Thanks to every one involved. And we are looking forward to see you at Tours Speedway for the Nascar Whelen Euro Series Oval World Challenge at Tours....
